Soccer (Ladies)


Welcome to NUI Galway Ladies Soccer Club!

Here at NUIG, women's soccer is fast becoming one of the university's most popular sports, and with the recent addition of a Galway Women's team to the Continental Tyres WNL, there is plenty more interest in the sport in the West of Ireland.

The club competes in the WSCAI Premier Division (see http://www.thirdlevelfootball.ie/wscai/ for more information) with games each semester.

New players are always welcome; we love to see new faces at training along with the usuals. We cater for home and exchange students at every level.

If you are interested in playing with us in the 2017/18 season, be sure to check us out and contact us at www.facebook.com/nuigalwaygirls

or send us an email at ladiessoccer@clubs.nuigalway.ie

Look forward to hearing from you!

History

The NUIG Ladies Soccer Club have a great tradition of comradery which can only be equaled by the desire to be the best team they can. The main aims of the Ladies Soccer club are: Playing soccer, being a social outlet for people to make friends and have fun, while always competing against other teams to make our mark in the womans game nationwide.

We have had several players capped at international level for Ireland and at the World University Students Games.

The university and the sports unit have been incredibly supportive to the development of the club and our committee members work hard every year to enable us to compete in all tournaments and leagues at a national level.
